SUMMER may feel like it’s barely over but it’s never too soon to plan your winter sun, according to new research from Skyscanner.
The travel search website found travellers can save 29% if they book flights for the Christmas holidays 13 weeks in advance, compared to November. And planning your trip to fly on December 24 can also save 19% — while Christmas Day itself is the most expensive.
Pick your destination carefully, and you could cut the cost even more — Penang in Malaysia has seen flight prices drop by 19% since last Golan Heights is emerging as Israel’s whisky region. Home to the Golan and Edrei distilleries (edreidistillery.com) in Katzrin, the Pelter Distillery (pelter.co.il/en) in Ein Zivan and Legends Distillery (legendsdistilleryisrael.com) in the Elah Valley, producing Americanstyle whisky, you can get a taste without leaving the cities.
The Jerusalem Distilling Company opened in January, while there are also over 1,000 different kinds to sample at the Whiskey Bar & Museum (whiskeybm.co.il/en) in Tel Aviv, along with tasting workshops and a menu featuring dishes to pair with the spirit.
